It may be possible to have revision rhinoplasty surgery to address your concerns. Your options must be weighed with the risks given your prior procedures.

There is no finite limit to the number of rhinoplasty procedures you can have, though.

You should consult with a revision rhinplasty specialist to see what could be done to help improve your nose.

When someone has had multiple surgeries on their nose, there will be scar tissue and persistent swelling.  This limits options and outcomes.  Nonetheless, in the hands of an expert revision rhinoplasty specialist, correction of your dorsum should be possible.  Please seek out a board-certified Facial Plastic surgeon.  Best wishes.
